In 2012 Shadow aka The Mighty Shadow aka Winston Anthony Bailey was decorated with the Order of the British Empire for his services in music. His grandfather always wanted him to become a lawyer but thanks to the Trinidadian calypsonian's grandson-disobidiance we are blessed today with his rich 70s and 80s discography.

D Hardest is a 4-to-the-floor soca heater originally released on Shadow's "Wake-Up" LP in 1980 on Charlie's Records. Soak in this uplifting calypso groove spiked with some dadaesque JH vocals and get hypnotised by a fat driving b-line and crazily beautiful strings!
